An Elementary Introduction to Groups and Representations
by Brian C. Hall
Publisher: arXiv 2000
Number of pages: 128
These notes give an elementary introduction to Lie groups, Lie algebras, and their representations. Designed to be accessible to graduate students in mathematics or physics, they have a minimum of prerequisites. Topics include definitions and examples of Lie groups and Lie algebras, the relationship between Lie groups and Lie algebras via the exponential mapping, the basics of representations theory, the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula, a detailed study of the representations of SU(3), and a brief survey of the representation theory of general semisimple groups.

This is an introduction to group theory, with an emphasis on Lie groups and their application to the study of symmetries of the fundamental constituents of matter. The text was written for seniors and advanced juniors, majoring in the physical sciences.

The following notes are the basis for a graduate course. They are oriented towards the application of group theory to particle physics, although some of it can be used for general quantum mechanics. They have no pretense of mathematical rigor.

This book focuses on recent developments concerning various quantitative aspects of thin groups. It provides a broad panorama of a very active field of mathematics at the boundary between geometry, dynamical systems, number theory, and combinatorics.
